abstract

  • Two patients in whom cutaneous necrotizing vasculitis and nephritis developed 12 to 22 hours after the intravascular injection of radiocontrast media are presented. In one patient, the fortuitous observation was made of sparing of the skin from vasculitis in an area into which xylocaine and epinephrine had been injected 4 hours prior to administration of the radiocontrast material. The possible mechanisms by which these reactions may have taken place and the potential implications are discussed. © 1984, American Academy of Dermatology, Inc.. All rights reserved.
